Two things you could try:

1) Your pickup rollers are dirty/worn:
Remove the tray, you should see either in the front or back some rubber rollers that feed the paper into the machine. These are much like tires in that they need thread to move the paper - if they're worn out, they need replacing - if they have a lot of paper dust or other stuff on them try to clean them with a moist lint-free rag. (Water only is fine, rubbing alcohol if they're bad)
Also look for a seperation pad, this will be a rubber or cork pad under the rollers. Clean this as well and if it's worn, replace.

2) A sensor is stuck or malfunctioning:
Run a page, make a mental note of where it stopped. Run another, did it stop in the EXACT same place both times?
Look in front of where the paper stopped, is there a small plastic flag right before the paper? Is it damaged or stuck? Try taking some canned air to that flag/sensor and try again.

Usually situations like these are either just simply worn/dirty rollers not feeding paper to the sensors in time or the sensors are damaged.
If neither of these resolve the problem then you may be looking at a solenoid issue or something else you wouldn't be able to repair on your own.

My printer keeps showing me E and doesnt print even though it makes d sound of printing. at times it takes sheet othertimes it doesnt. what do i do?


Sounds like a feed roller problem. The Error is being generated by the fact the print head is moving as though to print but the rollers are not pulling the papers through. If you had a paper jam in the past, this would account for some possible damage to the rollers. It could be something as simple as the paper guides being too tight (adjust them by sliding them).

Have a look at the feed path and see if any of the small rollers are out of line or the retaining springs are bent or dislodged, check also if the bar along which the print head runs is warped slightly

When printing begins the paper feeds in diagonally and immediately crumples a bit and stops moving.


Take out the paper and look in the paper feeding slot: you will see a metal rod with seven rubber rollers on it. One of them (the one opposite the crumpling) is not catching the paper properly.

Easy to fix reasons are pieces of paper or debris caught in the plastic "teeth" of the mechanism, which stop the paper from being captured, and the whole rod snapped out of one side's retainers (gently pull it back in position until it clicks. The snapped-out side is the one opposite the crumpling).

The debris might also be just inside the feeder slot, so you'll have to use a strong light and hair-tweezers.

Unlikely-to-be-fixable reasons include worn out or defective rollers, severely snapped-out-of-alignment rollers and a warped rod.

You may get the printer to print (if the rod is intact but mysteriously not catching the paper) by keeping the paper upright with two fingers on the sides, so that one side's rollers only are supplying traction and your fingers supply the steadying. Not very satisfactory, but the "hand-feeding" often works.

You may also get some more weeks out of a worn roller by cleaning it carefully with a cotton swab and rubber cleaning fluid (beware not to use a solvent! "Rubber renewing" sprays are usually OK, just spray some on the swab). Sometimes, dust is enough to get an otherwise good roller out of operation; in this case the trick gets you a couple years' time.

Hi,
Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.

Paper jam in fuser


Sounds like a timing jam, check paper supply, fanned, good quality, check and clean paper feed rollers.
Registration rollers clean?

If you are a tech, check and clean paper feed clutches, registration clutch. Check fuser for bearings, fuser drive, fuser roller cleaner or worn rollers.
Check exit sensor, is it out of place, is the actuator worn out, is the paper curling and coming off of the paper too early,

Try these, hope it is of some help.

Printers that jam usually have worn feed rollers, some where in the machine, or a bad sensor. If worn feed rollers are the problem the paper usually jams in different locations in the machine. If a sensor is bad the paper usually jams in the same spot each time paper is fed into the machine. A new machine does not have worn rollers, but could have a broken sensor. It sounds like the a roller might be worn. There is a company called Tech Support that use to sell a cleaning fluid for paper feed rollers. You can use alcohol but alcohol dries out rubber, but you can use it to diagnose the problem. Clean all visible rollers. Especially the rollers that the paper jams between.

Problem in feeding papers


Sounds like the pick up rollers are either dirty or are worn out. You can try cleaning them with a soft lint free cloth. Just look for a roller or wheel looking item where the printer picks up the paper. If they feel very smooth then they maybe worn out and may be replaceable. Check the owner's manual or the manufacturer's website to find out.

Hope this helps!

Paper Jam


We need to the model/make to help you


but using some detective skills I've decided you are using a HP machine

Yup Dirty damaged worn feed roller but what model machine is it they are all different but pull out tray 2 cassette all the way and look in, there is probally a cylinder like rubber roller 5cm wide front centre of where cassette slides in, there might be roller on the cassette too at the front center as well.

Most modern printers feed rollers just slide off after lifting small plastic tabs on them and gently pulling, feed rollers are available but you can sometimes also get results by cleaning them with a dash of metho or water on a rag.

If paper feeds 2wo sheets at once then you need to change the seperation pad/roller too.
